Labor, Health, Racialization, and Immigration in Comparative Perspective

You are here

ISSI hosted four visiting scholars from Norway as part of the project, “Transnational Migration and Inequality: Implications for Health and Health Services.” The project is led by Seth Holmes, Co-Chair of the Berkeley Center for Social Medicine, Heidi E. Fjeld, Associate Professor at the University of Oslo, Norway, and Johan Fredrik Rye, Professor at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, and funded by the Peder Sather Center, UCB. In May, ISSI’s Berkeley Center for Social Medicine hosted a three-day workshop focused on im/migration in the USA and Norway. Scholars discussed comparative hierarchies of deservingness, labor, racialization, unions, access to health institutions, among other concerns being faced by immigrant communities. Pictured above are those who visited Swanton Berry Farm to speak with a United Farm Workers (UFW) union organizer and farmworkers.
